Benign breast disease is used to describe many noncancerous disorders that can affect the breast.
The term fibrocystic change may be used to describe a range of benign breast conditions.
Fibroadenomas are solid, benign tumors that are common in young women. These are generally painless, mobile, and rubbery. They may enlarge around pregnancy and breast feeding. Treatment may include careful monitoring to detect changes in the size or feel, or surgery to remove it.
